Hank Azaria breaks bad in Smurfs Movie

One of the most talented actors and poker players on the planet goes evil in The Smurfs movie. Hank Azaria plays Gargamel as he runs around Earth trying to kill little blue creatures. I caught up with him at the blue carpet and talk about what his poker buddies said when he told them he was in the Smurfs movie.

James Franco Danny Boyle yarn about 127 Hours and arm off

I saw this movie at the Toronto Film Festival. I loved this movie and have made it the film of the year. Great directing and a brilliant job from James Franco. I like to think I can handle myself when watching movies but this one pushed me over the edge. I lived it with James Franco as he played Aaron Ralston as he contemplated after 127 Hours to cut his arm off to free himself from a canyon. Tossing and turning and hiding your eyes behind your hands is what will happen when you get this cinematic experience. Danny Boyle is a top fella and one heck of a film maker.

WATCH VIDEO BELOW…..sorry about the audio….absolute disaster!!! But still an interview!

Back amongst all the Twilight New Moon madness everyone was talking about Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and the wolf kid Taylor Lautner. Thats all I really cared about too on the day I was summoned to Los Angeles to interview them. However something strange happened. My first interview was with the chick who plays Alice in the movie.

Playing Edward Cullen’s sister Alice didn’t start out being a big role in the first Twilight but by the end of New Moon people stood up and asked “Who is this hot piece of vampire?” Well that’s what I said.

I was thrust into an interview room at the Four Season’s Hotel in Beverly Hills where I was made to interview Ashley Greene. The first thing I realised was how hot she was. She looked a hell of a lot better than Alice in the movie. Take a look below at the video of me getting flustered interviewing her. What a mess I was!

I’ve since seen her on red carpets in New York City and she is by far the best looking lady on them. She just has to leave her pet dog at home more….one of those little rat-like dogs that she dresses up in rainbow sweaters. I nearly stepped on it when I interviewed her.

Other people have discovered how hot she is. She will be appearing in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition covered in body paint. That hits shelves in early February. Before you get a hold of the one handed magazine you can check out the hot video of Ashley rolling around on a tree and on the beach naked….well covered in that pesky paint….if you have a good imagination you can get past the paint.

Check out the video….

Robert Downey Jnr with his Mrs and Jude Law

Sherlock Holmes is doing great at the box office. This action movie is great fun and cements Robert Downey Jnr as an unlikely action star. I caught up with him, Jude Law and the director Guy Ritchie.

Jude Law the Englishman starts off having a go at me about England beating Australia in the cricket!

Hugh Grant thinks he knows fashion over me

HughGrant

I’ve always enjoyed Hugh Grant’s movies since Four Weddings and a Funeral. He just seems like a guy who really has no interest being a movie star. I caught up with him at the red carpet of his new movie starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Did you hear about the Morgans?….It’s a movie where Hugh Grant and SJP are banished to a farm in a witness relocation program.

The least talking superstar in Hollywood is Robert De Niro. One of the great actors of our time De Niro runs down red carpets in fear of talking to anyone. After about 15 attempts of talking to talk to Robert De Niro I attempt to get a few words out of him at the Everybody’s Fine red carpet.

Every year I attend the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year event. They have really good hors d’œuvre’s that I smash with abundance and free flowing beers. Also at the event is the greatest sportsman of the year. This year’s choice was a little bit controversial. Derek Jeter, the captain of the World Series champions, was chosen to be SI Sportsman of the Year.

The tough part of this assignment was getting him to talk in a laid-back manner. On September 10th I interviewed him about breaking the hit record for the Yankees and the interview finished awkwardly. You can check that interview out below to see why I was a little nervous about getting a fun interview with Mr Jeter.

HERE IS MY LAST JETER INTERVIEW….make sure you catch the end….

Over the years I have had a lot of fun with Ricky Gervais. For some reason he finds my head weird and at times very topical. This time I got Ricky to talk on the phone so he didn’t lose his train of thought when looking at my head! November 5th Ricky will be performing a the New York Comedy Festival. You can still get tickets to this rare show at Carnegie Hall.

October 2nd his movie Invention of Lying comes out starring Jennifer Garner.

Clive Owen – The Boys Are Back – Red carpet New York

I have interviewed a number of times over the last 4 years. He is one of my favourite actors and great fella. Unfortunately he thinks that I am drunk most of the time. I guess I look a bit drunk most of the time. It all started when we first met the day after Halloween in 2005. It was on the red carpet for Derailed and I wasn absolute mess from the night before.

Tyler Perry has a confusing movie title

I CAN DO BAD ALL BY MYSELF if the title of Tyler Perry’s new movie. Unfortuantely I haven’t seen any of Tyler’s movies but I do know they involve him dressing up as a woman called Madea. The title of this particular movie was confusing for me and I attempted to get it right when I interviewed the producers and the cast of the movie….
